this culture, the meaning is mutually accepted. the use of symbols is the single most distinguishing feature of any culture. but as distinct as they are, all symbols are used for the same purpose -- to communica, manipulate, and preserve information. the circle of coral symbolizes the night sky. but this lesson depends on the use of language, a symbolic system in which arbitrary sounds are joined together and given meaning. of all symbolic systems, language best communicates very complex ideas. here, celestial navigation is taught on a south pacific island. we begin to learn language and other symbolic systems at birth. in time, they become a part of who we are and how we perceive the world. still, it's difficult for those of us in one culture to fully understand the symbolic systems of another. for archaeologists, the task is even more complex. the cultures they study can no longer be directly observed. archaeologist david webster. webster: suppose i came into this stadium a week, or even a century, after all the people left. how would i figure out what happened here ? what this arena was u
they use. households in such simple economies are almost completely self-sufficient. at the other end of the spectrum are highly complex economies in which people specialize in one particular job, like these shoe salesmen in morocco. specialization means people are no longer self-sufficient, but depend on each other. the shoe salesmen are dependent on the shoemakers, and the shoemakers are dependent on the tanners, and so on. this dependence on others makes society in general more complex, so specialization is a measure of society's overall complexity. archaeologists find evidence of specialization everywhere -- in the buildings and sculpture of ancient cities, and in crafts like elegant jade earrings, decorated pottery and even skulls with jade inlays in their teeth. these craft items were all made by specialists who worked at the ancient maya city of copan. between a.d. 400 and 800, this magnificent city flourished as one of the major centers of maya art and culture. copan was built in a broad mountain valley on the western border of honduras. at its height, the economic system of t

[humming] but nothing can be done, no individualized plan or program can even begin to be put into place, till the child is correctly identified as

life-saving treatment for the first time. the u.s. government has joined with some of its biggest foreign rivals in opposing an international moratorium on capital punishment. the u.n. general assembly voted against the death penalty earlier this week by a vote of 110 to 39, with u.s. joined in opposition by countries including iran, north korea, syria, and china. british prosecutors have charged two former top executives at rupert mourdock's news international with bribing public officials for information. rebekah brooks, a former editor and onetime head of news international, is accused of conspiring to pay $160,000 in bribes to a british defense ministry official over a seven- year period. brooks has been a close confidante of mourdock's as well as a friend of british prime minister david cameron. in a separate incident, andy coulson, a former editor who once served as scammers spokesperson, is also facing bribery charges. he and brooks already face criminal charges stemming from the scandal that led to the shutdown of murdoch's news of the world tabloid last year amidst revela
show them all inus.ifferent cereals, it doesn't seem to give us better health re, it doesn't seem to give us lower costs, but it does give us choice, and we value choice above everything. from a practical point of view, the first decision many consumers are confronted with is how to finance their health care. the choices are simply to pay for it themselves, or to enroll in a private or public health insurance plan. a lot is said about the marketplace of health care. well, for half of people who are getting their health plan through an employer, their employer offers such a narrow range of plans that they-- the consumer-- feel that they are cut off from options they really would like to have. many employers only offer plans that require a patient co-pay or less expensive hmos. cost-sharing makes the assumption that the person can identify what's an appropriate and inappropriate service. and so you go to the doctor, and you're looking for help, and you have to pay maybe 20% of the doctor bill. so, because of that 20% of the doctor bill, you're supposed to be able to say, "doc, do i
these ancient families tell us about our own families ? around the world, archaeologists are looking far beyond the palaces and temples into the households of common people, bringing families to life out of the past. come forward all the way. oooh ! that's it. good. hold on me. come forward. ease the baby out with little pushes. come on. you can do it. beautiful ! the baby's coming up to you. waaahh ! keach: every newborn child immediately confronts three basic needs -- food, shelter and education. in the beginning, these needs are met at home. but in industrial societies, that soon changes. teacher: times three... we educate our children in schools. how would you read this number ? 21,000. you're getting these two a little mixed up from the example before. we earn our daily bread in offices, and we buy it in markets. but in many cultures, the household is still the most basic unit of society, where people spend most of their days, producing what they need to live and teaching their children their values and culture. anthropologist richard wilk. a household is an activity group. it's a group of
become apparent. things that help people age successfully are things that our moms probably taught us: eat right, exercise, stay involved and active. people who age well really do seem to be folks who have maintained a lot of physical and cognitive kinds of activity. the fact is, many seniors do not eat adequately, for reasons not necessarily related to their physical condition, or to their economic well-being. dr. lipson: most of our frail seniors in this country are women, because men don't live as long. as a consequence, it's often a situation where the woman of the family has cooked the meals, and now she has no one to cook for, so there's no reason to cook. and so you tend to get processed foods or fast foods, some of which have high salt, and some of which have high fat. and so it's important that one be careful, and not get into a situation where you're getting malnourished by eating.'s tough exercise, you know? exercise is another important ingredient in the recipe for a long life... but not just any kind of exercise. dr. lipson: walking has been the most importt type of
sense to us. maybe in tomorrow's world, when we goose up to speeds like that, it will be. i'll give you an example. when you go to the travel agents today you see these exotic posters on their walls, right? they get posters of the hawaiian islands, right? and everyone wants to spend a little time in the hawaiian islands, right? so they put these posters of the hawaiian islands with the palm trees and all that, the royal hawaiian hotel and all-- it makes you wanna get a couple of weeks off and go there, doesn't it? anyway, you see these posters of places. how many posters have you ever seen in a travel agent that posts times? like, you can talk about traveling to south america, you can talk about traveling to the mainland. you can talk about traveling to europe, but can you go to the travel agent today and talk about traveling into time? we got new years coming up. we got a big one pretty soon, 2000, the year 2000, okay? and then 2001, 21st century, yeah? how about someone says, well, i'm not so much interested in that. i'm kind of a futurist. most of my friends are sort of like historia
small to actually see, even under a high powered microscope. but, we can use biochemical reactions to amplify the dna. successive mutations to the hereditary material of certain cells produce oncogenes-- "on" switches that accelerate cell growth. tumor suppressor genes, "off" switches that restrict growth, may also mute .. become lost from the hereditary makeup of a cell. when this happens, a cell can make billions of copies of its abnormal self. the excess tissue forms a mass-- a tumor. some tumors are benign... they don't invade nearby tissue or spread to other parts of the body. but a malignant tumor is cancer. its cells can invade and destroy healthy tissue, and spread to other parts of the body through the blood and lymph system. when we get that tumor and we look at the molecular changes in the tumor, we're kind of looking at the end stage. it's not the end stage of the disease for the patient but it's kind of the end product. what we really need to understand is, what is the first mutation that allows that cell to have slight growth advantage? in other words, the cell is uns
baghdad. it was one of the worst attacks against iraqi military so far this year. the u.s. soldier charged with the massacre of afghan civilians in march appeared in court on monday for a preliminary hearing to determine whether he will face a full court-martial. robert bales faces 16 counts of murder, one for each of his victims. musa mahmuddi of the afghanistan independent human rights commission called on the west to ensure the victims' families are heard. >> we strongly ask the united states that justice should be applied in a trial should be based on the principles of fair trial, and provide opportunities and time to the victims' family members to be heard in the court of the united states. >> bales was on his fourth combat tour following earlier stints in iraq and afghanistan. on monday, a former military comrade testified that robert bales had shown no remorse after committing the shootings. prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. a family in pakistan is accusing the u.s. of killing an elderly woman and wounding six of her grandchildren and a drone attack late last month. the str

for the f.p.a conning tower. and the newspapers used to carry light verse, every newspaper. there were about twenty-five of them at that time, not two or three now owned by two people in the world, you know. and they actually carried light verse. well, yip and ira and dorothy parker, the whole crowd, had light verse in there, and, you know, they loved it. so, when the crash came and yip's business went under, and he was about anywhere from $50,000 to $70,000 in debt, his partner went bankrupt. he didn't. he repaid the loans for the next 20 or 15 years, at least. ira and he agreed that he should start writing lyrics. amy goodman: let's talk about what yip is most known for: finian's rainbow, the wizard of oz. right here, what do we have in front of us? ernie harburg: we have a lead sheet. we are in the gallery of the lincoln center for the performing arts, and there's an exhibition called "the necessity of rainbows," which is the work of yip harburg. and we are looking at the lead sheet of "brother, can you spare a dime?" which came from a review called americana, whichit was the first review
stated, "little by little, i have managed to reach a point at which i use no more than a small number of forms and colors." this process found a culminating expression the maquette for the tial gallery's tapestry. miro entered the project with much enthusim, stating, "i'll go into this and fight it through with everything i have." over my months, the tapestry took shape in his imagination. finally, in 1976 it waset down rapidly as a maquette. in the ancient catalan city of tarragona, joan miro meets with young master weaver josep royo to discuss the transformation of his painting into a 10-meter-high tapestry. studying a photograph of the maquette, they consider how best to translate miro's art into a heavily- textured weaving, which would capture the spirit of his concept. royo has an enormous task before him. in this converted flour mill in tarragona, many months of preparation are needed before the weaving itself can begin. nearly four miles of heavy cotton line is measured, stretched and chained for use as the tapestry's vertical warp. royo has developed a unique loom for weaving
to decay? it turns out a long time. it turns out 4 1/2 billion years. yeah. and you know, when i used to prospect for uranium, i used to find uranium, you know? and that for every time i'd find uranium inside that rock, guess what also was there? - the lead. - lead. and guess how much lead compared to how much uranium? more. about same-same, which means that what, the age of that rock is about what? 4 1/2 billion year, that's the age of the earth. so 4 1/2 billion years is the radioactive half-life for the isotope uranium 238. that means in 4 1/2 billion years, all the 238 atoms around, half of them on the average will have decayed to something else. now, that's a long half-life. a shorter half-life is like a radium. radium, i think, is 1,620 years, something like that. and radioactive carbon 14, that's 5,730 years. and little neutrons, it turns out a neutron by itself is radioactively decayed. and that will decay in about 12 minutes, half-life about 12 minutes. and then a little new-- at a 2 millionths of a second, half of them will decay, so there's a whole range of radioactive path
, in the early thirties, that sort of thing, 1930s and forties, people used to try atom smashes, used to try to see if they could transmute elements from one kind to another. and one of the reactions that did succeed was kinda novel. instead of throwing higher and higher velocity particles at matter, three people in germany, lisa meitner, otto hahn, otto-- strassman, i think, anyway, what they did was they threw slow moving neutrons at uranium isotopes and they found a reaction that changed the world. and the reaction that changed the world is that what you see before you here. it's in your textbooks. the first page in the chapter, fission and fusion. and all we're saying is that it turns out if a slow moving neutron taps into uranium 235 isotope-- [makes sounds] --it will lay it right in half, and the isotopes, instead of a little particle coming off like maybe a proton or an alpha particle, the whole things falls on half. wild. and-- [makes sounds] here's a typical reaction. there are many reactions. this is just the typical one. the uranium busts in half into krypton and barium. these are
. and that rainbow is another word for spectral-- spectrum of colors, yeah? and this will give us spectrum of colors too. it turns out it will give a spectrum of colors because it turns out different colors of light will travel at different speeds-- right. --through this material or any material. did you guys know the speed of light is less in glass and water than it is in air? and how come the light slows down when it gets to the glass or when it gets to the water or anything? and here's another thing. this used to bother me years ago. if the light slows down when it gets in the glass, how's it speed up when it comes out the other side? it seemed if you want to get light to slow down, get it on a piece of glass plates and at the end, you can just catch it in a bucket. that keep dribbling down, yeah? but how does the light speed up again? how does light get through glass? let me give you a little scenario of something like how that works. light is a throbbing spark of electromagnetic energy, huh? and that throbbing spark of electromagnetic energy has a certain frequency, at a certain frequency at wh
standard diagnostic procedures used to test for coronary heart disease. a doctor may use several to determine the extent of the disease. goldenetz: the first doctor that ever said anything about coronary to me... it w really funny. judy and i had gone on a cruise, and i got this kind of tightness again and it was almost like my throat though, again. so i went to see the physician on the ship, not really feeling that bad, but i thought, "well, you know, i'll nip it in the bud." i didn't feel good enough to go on one of the tours off the ship. so i went to see the doctor on board the ship, and he gave me an ekg and did some other things. and he says, "anybody ever said anything about a coronary problem to you?" an electrocardiogram (ekg) is a graphic record of the electricaactivity the heart as it beats. it can detect abnormal heartbeats, inadequate blood flow and heart enlargement. goldenetz: i then decided, well, i'm gonna get this taken care of one way or another. so i went to my regular family doctor who had seen me a couple of times with this same complaint. he decided, i thin
the average speed by taking the distance divided by the time. that would give us the average speed. and let's suppose every one of us makes careful measurements and we all get the same average speed, okay? but here's the postulate, that no matter how i move, we will still all get the same average speed. well, right here, this is not controversial. you see it go up, you see it go down. you see it go through that particular space and you measure on your watches that particular time. i measured the same thing. i measured the same space, i measure the same time. we all get the same value. i'm gonna repeat. this time, i'm gonna move. i'm gonna look at it and you look at it. i see the same thing as before. i saw the same thing as before, okay? i saw it go straight up and straight down. get into an airplane and flip a coin. what's the path? straight up and down, right? now, get outside the airplane and look at the path. whoosh, whoosh. okay? you guys saw this. watch again. you guys saw it go like this. now, if you get the same speed, you don't, you really saw it moving faster. but if you got the s

was looking at this big backyard full of weeds, and i thought, you know what? if martha is using--martha stewart is using meyer lemons, i bet you i could grow meyer lemons and sell them online. >> indeed, since martha stewart began using meyer lemons in the nineties, their notoriety has exploded. thin-skinned and slightly less acidic than other varieties, meyer lemons are known as backyard lemons because they're usually too fragile to ship, so therefore they're not often sold commercially. so when karen planted 40 trees in her backyard, she hoped to sell a few to neighbors and friends maybe, but nearly 6 years and 80,000 lemons harvested later, and the backyard fruit has turned karen's backyard into a full-time farming profession. welcome to the lemon ladies orchard in san mateo country. >> like all things in life, you have to love what you're doing. you have to be passionate about it. you have to care about it. you have to want to have a quality product. you have to wanna deliver a quality, uh--a quality product, something that--that people are delighted to receive. and i do all
